    Hello Xiaohui,

    Have you had any performance data to share here? I tested my
    experimental macvtap zero copy for TX only. The performance I have seen
    as below without any tuning, (default setting):

    Before: netperf 16K message size results with 60 secs run is 7.5Gb/s
    over ixgbe 10GbE card. perf top shows:

    2103.00 12.9% copy_user_generic_string
    1541.00 9.4% handle_tx
    1490.00 9.1% _raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore
    1361.00 8.3% _raw_spin_lock_irqsave
    1288.00 7.9% _raw_spin_lock
    924.00 5.7% vhost_worker

    After: netperf results with 60 secs run is 8.1Gb/s, perf output:

    1093.00 9.9% _raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore
    1048.00 9.5% handle_tx
    934.00 8.5% _raw_spin_lock_irqsave
    864.00 7.9% _raw_spin_lock
    644.00 5.9% vhost_worker
    387.00 3.5% use_mm

    I am still working on collecting more data (latency, cpu
    utilization...). I will let you know once I get all data for macvtap TX
    zero copy. Also I found some vhost performance regression on the new
    kernel with tuning. I used to get 9.4Gb/s, now I couldn't get it.
